LUKE BRYAN SELLS OUT SECOND MADISON SQUARE GARDEN SHOW

Nashville, TN – November 18, 2013 – When tickets for Luke Bryan’s concert at New York City’s Madison Square Garden sold-out in five minutes,  Luke decided to add a second show due to fan demand in the market.  The second concert, to be held on September 12, 2014, went on sale this past Saturday morning and it too sold-out within minutes.  Luke’s 2014 tour, “That’s My Kind of Night Tour,” will launch on January 16 in Columbus, Ohio and will feature Lee Brice and Cole Swindell on the first leg.
“I can’t thank my fans enough for being so eager to see us play in New York City,” said Luke.  “They have made my first time playing Madison Square Garden a two-time experience.  I’m trying to let it all sink in but I cannot wait to get there and share my live show with them!”
Luke wrapped his sold-out 2013 tour, the “Dirt Road Diaries Tour,” in late October but fans can see him perform on ABC’s American Music Awards on November 24, on the Tonight Show on November 26, The Ellen Show on November 27 as well as the CMA Country Christmas special on December 2.  On December 3, Luke will be honored on the fourth annual CMT Artists of the Year special.
Luke’s career now boasts over four million in album sales with eight #1 singles.  His recent album, Crash My Party, sold 527,783 units in its first week of release in mid-August, making it the largest sales debut for a Country male artist since 2004.  It also topped both the Billboard 200 and Country sales charts and is the fourth highest album to debut across all genres this year.  Additionally, Luke is one of only two country artists that have sold more than a half-million copies of an album in a single week since 2008. This is Bryan’s second consecutive Top 200 #1 album.  Crash My Party has now sold over one million copies and has been certified Platinum by the RIAA.
